I was going for the blacked out look but ive seen certain black wheels that look tiny but are quite big,ive always wanted gunmetal but might ruin the looks?! Any photos of your car mate?

Not a fan of gloss black wheels on cars. Had satin black though on a previous car.

When the time came to sell it, I picked it clean and sold it in many pieces :geek:

It was worth about twice as much in parts as it was as a whole car (with a few issues).

Thats a shame! So many decent cars getting broke but your right what it cost to fix outweighs what you’re gonna get in parts,same thing with the elite Zaf i just broke,absolutely nothing wrong with it apart from needing mot and worth £1000-£1500 ,i paid £500 got all the piano stuff,gearbox,leathers and a couple other bits and sold the rest and made a profit

Yep, you've gotta do whatever makes financial sense at the time.

I reached the £8K mark in parts recently. Still have the S4 rear bumper/skirts/rear doors/steering wheel/prop/switches/starter etc etc.
